Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) 1.0 An element whose implicit native role semantics will not be mapped to the accessibility API. The intended use is when an element is used to change the look of the page but does not have all the functional, interactive, or structural relevance implied by the element type, or may be used to provide for an accessible fallback in older browsers that do not support WAI-ARIA. Example use cases: Main NGINX is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server and reverse proxy, as well as an IMAP/POP3 proxy server. NGINX is known for its high performance, stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption. NGINX is one of a handful of servers written to address the C10K problem. Unlike traditional servers, NGINX doesn’t rely on threads to handle requests.

Why Standards Harmonization is Essential for Web Abstract This document explains the key role that harmonization of standards plays in increasing the accessibility of the Web for people with disabilities. It examines how adoption of a consistent set of international technical standards, the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines for Web content, authoring tools, browsers and media players can drive more rapid progress on Web accessibility, and make the design and development of accessible Web sites more efficient. Common standards for Web content accessibility and for authoring tools encourages the development of tools that support production of accessible Web content. Likewise, the adoption of a consistent standard for browser and media player accessibility would improve access to and reinforce the accessibility of Web content, and would help ensure that accessible content will be more available through assistive technologies used by some people with disabilities.

HTML5: The Missing Manual: O'Reilly - Safari Books Online Subscriber Reviews Average Rating: Based on 3 Ratings "HTML5" - by dekou812 on 25-SEP-2012Reviewer Rating: Rich Internet application Google trends shows (as of September 2012) that frameworks based on a plug-in are in the process of being replaced by HTML5/JavaScript-based alternatives.[3][4] RIAs dominate in browser based gaming as well as applications that require access to video capture (with the notable exception of Gmail, which uses its own task-specific browser plug-in).[7] Web standards such as HTML5 have developed and the compliance of Web browsers with those standards has improved somewhat. However, the need for plug-in based RIAs for accessing video capture and distribution has not diminished,[8] even with the emergence of HTML5 and JavaScript-based desktop-like widget sets that provide alternative solutions for mobile Web browsing.

Accessibility The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect. Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web User Agent Man — A Blog about Client Side Web Technology I am Zoltan "Du Lac" Hawryluk (and yes, Zoltan is my real name). I am web developer born and raised in Toronto, Canada. I research new web technologies, especially the ones with the sexy overused acronyms, like HTML5 and CSS3. I am also the creator of several JavaScript libraries (cssSandpaper, html5Widgets, visibleIf), a few online tools (IE Transform Translator, CSS3 Matrix Construction Set) and other random things (CSS3 Font Converter). When I discover stuff, I post my findings here — partly because I want to share with the community, and partly because I forget things if I don't write them down.
